e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Populus genus for the biomass production for energy use: a review


Much attention is currently focused on biomass production as one possible alternative energy source because of the need to increase the amount of energy produced in Spain from renewable energy sources. Amongst the different types of biomass available, those crops which are specifically designed for the purpose, the so-called << energy crops >>, allow us not only to plan the production of this resource but also to provide a viable alternative for agricultural land in areas where traditional crops are gradually being abandoned. The objective of this study is to revise the current knowledge base in relation to Populus spp.; a woody crop with great potential for this purpose which can be grown at high densities in short rotation coppices. Its suitability for the production of energy producing biomass will be assessed, focusing in particular on the base material to be employed, the plantation design and the cultural treatments to be applied.
